ExistHost currently has several different hosting plans available, as well as some special prices on select plans. For this review, we’re going to take a look at their BudgetByte plan which starts at $6.95 per month. This price drops down to $4.40 per month if you decide to purchase a year’s worth of hosting in advance.

You’ll get 1 gig of disk space and 30 gigs of monthly data transfer with this plan. A free domain name is provided and unlike many budget hosts, you’ll be allowed to host two different domains with this plan. This is a great feature for companies that have more than one site and don’t necessarily want to spend extra money for a reseller plan. Unlimited subdomains are provided as well as a dedicated IP address, making this a great hosting option for companies that need this feature for their SSL certificates. If you don’t currently have an SSL certificate, ExistHost will provide a shared SSL certificate, free of charge. A PayPal shopping cart is also included, if you’re currently using PayPal to process your orders.

2 MySQL databases are provided, which is a little light, but should still be enough for a small company. PHPMyAdmin is provided for administering your databases, and you’ll also have support for PHP 4.3.6 with Zend Optimizer, Perl, Front Page and SSI. 5 shopping carts are included, and several content management systems, blogging utilities, message board scripts and image galleries are also provided.

Support is provided for streaming audio and video, as well as Flash and Shockwave. The HSphere control panel is offered with this plan and Site Builder is also included. Support options include telephone, email and chat and the support staff is available 24/7. With a 30-day money back guarantee, and the low price, this is truly a hosting plan worth looking into, particularly for small businesses.
